To help get us a little more cozy with early DC aircraft, the first ever Douglas airliners, this is the well known UIVER (Dutch for Stork) DC-2 replica in KLM Royal Dutch Air Lines colors. It was owned by the Aviodrome Aerospace Museum in the Netherlands. Unfortunately the operation has gone into bankruptcy and is looking for new investors. Click here for the latest info.
They owned two originals at one time until one of them was destroyed in a crash described below. The plane in this video is its KLM replica replacement. A US Navy original flown to the Netherlands and painted in original format. The other lone original is in a bad state of repairs at the museum. Hopefully both of these historic aircraft will be placed in a new home for all to see.
